Not worth the money

Posted May 25, 2015
Pros: Not much.
Cons: better pillows, cleaner room, hairdryer in bathroom. More competent staff.
Location: Nothing!
Stayed there for a conference at the University nearby. The hotel provides no shuttle service, so you might as well pay 20 dollars more per night at a way nicer hotel instead of taking a taxi to where you need to get. The hotel... sorry... MOTEL... is right across the street from a busy highway, so you can't really walk anywhere. The hotel lobby was dirty (crap all over the carpet), and the staff was incompetent. We asked if they could call us a taxi in the morning, but alas, the taxi wasn't there the next day, so we had to call. On our last night (a Saturday night), there was a party right next door, (and right above the reception desk) that went till about 2 AM. The party spilled out into the main walkway of the second floor, so we could hear people talking right outside our door. Nothing was done about this. Overall, pretty disappointing considering we paid almost 90 bucks a night. The pillows were awful, the picture of the suite does not show what it really looks like. The bathroom floor was dirty, no hairdryer in bathroom. Not worth it.

Nice hotel, under renovated

Posted May 1, 2015
Pros: Reasonably priced. Very clean and comfortable room. Friendly staff.
Cons: We had no complaints. We were very satisfied.
Location: Near shopping mall, a large shopping center, and many restaurants. Easy to get to, right o.ff the highway. Near the U of I campus
Booked hotel based on other quests comments. Must say that we were pleasantly surprised by the overall appearance of the room upon first entering. Nicely decorated, comfortable looking and very clean. Was happy to see a mini fridge and an iron and ironing board in the room. The bed was unbelievably comfortable. We slept great. Even the pillows were great. I've gotten to the place where I bring my own pillow from home when I stay in hotels, this time I took my pillow back out to the car, I didn't need it here. Lighting was good. Room temperature was good and easily controlled. The bathroom was a little confining. Not a lot of space in there. But the water pressure was real good and had plenty of hot water. Another fantastic bonus with this room was that you heard no ambient noise, not from other rooms, outside, or traffic, as this hotel is very near highways, shopping centers, and restaurants. We were very, very satisfied with our stay here.

Last resort

Posted Apr 27, 2015
Stayed at this hotel for Illinois marathon. This was a busy weekend because an auto demolition was going on too. No coffee maker in room, no refrigerator no microwave in room. No breakfast provided by hotel. Charged us a 2 night minimum. Several hotels around that area that were much nicer. Red roof is a motel not a hotel. Loud guests hanging about on upstairs rail talking smokin and drinking all night. No one from Red Roof monitoring this. Never again. We left after 1 night.

Suited my needs

Posted Apr 26, 2015
I had two reservations and staff checked us in without photo ID. Another staff member gave me a second room key when I asked for one based only on my room number.

En renovation

Posted Apr 25, 2015
Pros: Qualité prix honorable
Cons: A l'intérieur, seules les vitres des fenêtres sont en mauvais état. Une meilleur visiblilite de l'accueil serait utile.
L'hotel est en renovation des extérieurs qui ne sont pas en état. Le problème est le chantier est très désordonné et fait vraiment sale. L'hotel a l'air abandonné. L'interieur est propre et fonctionne agréablement.

A good place for the money

Posted Apr 24, 2015
Pros: Nice manager.
Cons: Overall, the hotel is dated and could use some major renovation.
Location: Good for visiting Champaign and the University of Illinois. But you should have a car.
Nice manager let me check in early. The place is showing its age, but it is acceptably clean and in a convenient location.

Economical and very nice

Posted Apr 16, 2015
Pros: Price, clean, quiet. Would definitely return. It stated remodeled room, so I would ask for that if booking.
Location: Close to freeway and eating establishments.
I was passing thru and just needed a room for the night. I booked on line and had a lovely newly remodeled room. It happened to be an HA room, new everything. Room 125. I had AARP discount. Outside entrance which I prefer. Quiet. Very economical--very nice.

Great hotel for a quick trip.

Posted Apr 13, 2015
Pros: Updated room, fresh paint. Location was great.
Cons: Nothing! Very nice.
Location: A big mall is just across the street & plenty of both sit-down and fast food restaurants in the area. Close to U of I campus.
We stayed here due to the other areas hotels being booked for Mom's Weekend at U of I. The room had been recently updated with new floor, new sink and fresh paint. The king size bed was very comfy with plenty of pillows. The room itself was small but we didn't spend much time in the room anyway. It was perfect for a quick trip. The front desk staff was very friendly on both the check in and check out. Fresh coffee in the lobby. I would stay here again.
